to see you. jennifer. jon exactly -- >> call me jennifer, suzanne, for sure. call me jennifer. >> i'll call you jennifer. you were the stand-in for sarah palin when joe biden was prepping in 2008. we were all wondering what's going on behind the scenes. how important is it this prepping for debate now? >> oh, it's huge. i mean, can you look at books and study policy papers all you want. there is no substitute for standing behind a podium and having everything but the kitchen sink thrown at you and formulate phrases to communicate. there's no substitute, and no one loves to do it. no one wants to do it, although i must say joe biden was very game in 2008 to do it. >> tell us what it looks like. who is actually in the room? this is a pretty secretive process zoosh yeah, i mean, i don't know what they're doing this year, but i can tell you in 2008 they have the policy people there. you remember that biden and obama were just sort of marrying as a team, and so we had some obama people and some biden people in the room. the folks who know the issues extremely well. the room itself is set
to regain control of the senate. >> arizona, we know republican senator jon kyl is retiring. the democratic campaign committee has an ad of attacks. the republican race for his record on issues impacting women. what is happening there? >> really interesting, brooke. this has been a sleeper race. the republican congressman you're talking about, jeff flake, an affable republican, known as a fiscal conservative. he was against the earmarks before, that was cool. democrats have been painting him as too far to the right as -- on social issues for the state of arizona. remember how worried republican leaders were about todd akin's comments about rape and abortion. this is why. watch this ad. >> jeff flake is hoping we remain silent as he votes to defund planned parenthood, denying us access to reproductive and preventative care. >> and another problem for flake is the democratic opponent he's running against is pretty much the last kind of democrat you want to run against, especially in a politically purple, increasingly hispanic state of arizona. richard car momona. he's a decorated vietnam vete
exactly to believe about the state of the race. take a look at jon stewart on "the daily show." >> the presidential race has tinted considerably. how do i know? >> a new poll from the pew research center. >> gallup poll. >> abc news "washington post" toll. >> maris college poll. >> the 7-eleven metric, you get a red cup for the republican, a blue cup for the democrat. >> of course, this is one small problem, though. this data coming in. has a tendency to contradict itself. just yesterday obama was simultaneously up by four, down by two and tied with mitt romney. >> will, you know, he does have a point. many of us think the same thing about polls. what do believe what not to believe. i tell you one thing i noticed when romney's down, the republicans say the polls are fixed. they don't believe it. when obama's down, democrats say the polls are firsted, they don't believe it. look, how much stock should we put in polls? >> one of the fews things roland and i have an actual agreement on. the limited value of pollsof turns an election into a football game, count the score midway th
he'll be sparring tonight. let's talk polls, brianna. this is my personal hat tip to jon stewart. kind of funny. just as he knows and everyone else knows, we check the daily gallup tracking polls here at cnn. it shows president obama losing two more points, mitt romney gaining one point. the president still leading. you see here 48% to romney's 46%. but, you know, we could theorize that post debate slide here for the president, brianna, hasn't bottomed out yet. is team obama realistically hoping that joe biden can turn it around tonight at the vp dpaeb debate? >> reporter: biden's folks say that the vice president is playing his own game but we know the reality. he is you should a lot of pressure because of what you see in the polls. this momentum that's very much on the side of mitt romney. and paul ryan. so it is very much up to vice president biden to take a shot here and try to stop some of that momentum because if you see a win by paul ryan, it's covered as a one-two punch. the momentum will continue. we know talking to some of the vice president's aides that he's going to c
to the pentagon, listen to what president obama told jon stewart about what happened right after that tack in lattack in libya. >> we weren't confused about the fact that four americans were killed. i wasn't confused about the fact that we needed to ramp up diplomatic security around the world after it happened. >> it was not the optimal response to the american people as far as us all being on the same page. >> here's what i'll say. >> yeah. >> if four americans get killed, it is not optimal. >> let's go to the pentagon now and talk to chris lawrence because, chris, there are all these new reports, they come in as far as what the cia might have known. what are you hearing? >> well, we're hearing some new reports from the ap, brooke, but stuff that cnn has already reported weeks ago. basically that in were indications shortly after this attack that it may not have been spontaneous, that it may have been planned. in fact, a u.s. official is basically saying no one right now is ruling out the idea that some of the attackers may have aspired to attack the consulate, but right now that officia
for an incumbent president. how does each side fit it into their larger strategy? for mitt romney, i think jon is right. job number one is reassuring people he's up to the job, that he's ready to be president. that's what he was able to do substantially on the economy in the first debate. that's the job on foreign policy here in the third debate, especially after that rocky trip this summer. i think for the president the question is can he fit the debate tonight again into his strategy in the end game, which seems to be very much foe kused on regaining strength among women that have moved away from him since that first debate. in the second debate he raised a lot of issues relating to women. i think tonight you will hear questioning about whether mitt romney is too quick to talk about war, particularly in regards to iran. >> most women i know don't like war. they want our military men and women to come home as in right now. so might that hurt mitt romney if he starts talking about iran and sort of war-like terms? >> i think it's very interesting. you saw joe biden try to open this door certain
